“Your ability to weave pop, rock, folk, even some roots-sound is a testament to your talents.” – Jango Airplay, USA
“Elle Carpenter reminds us of a high-pitched male vocalist in a pop-punk band — but in a good way. Carpenter’s approach to her lyrics and switching up her tone makes it clear none of the songs are by accident.” – Las Vegas Citylife
While she mainly sings in pop rock, Elle also plays with ballads, folks songs, country, spoken word, R&B and rock.
Originally from Vermont, Elle Carpenter has been singing as long as she’s been walking. She spent significant childhood years touring around the country with four siblings and her mother, performing and doing workshops at folk festivals, schools and other events.
At age 6 she recorded her first record, singing back-up as one of the “Wee-bops” of Central Vermont. Soon afterwards she recorded another album with a folk group called the Fiddleheads. From age 10 to 16 Elle toured with world/folk music group Village Harmony, traveling around the USA, UK, Canada, Denmark and Germany. In 2009 (after recording and releasing her first solo album “The Best”) she was flown to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to perform at the White Palace Convention Center for a month.
Elle has been touring the USA since 2010, having released two additional rock albums: “With Open Hands” (November 2011) and “Simple Girl” (January 2014).
Elle is proud to have a new album coming out in May 2015: this next album is a true reflection of the diversity she has experienced in her life as a musician. Titled “Life Just Happens To You,” this acoustic folk/rock/country compilation is Elle’s first step into the world of Americana.
